Salvatore is a Norwegian group whose John McEntire (Tortoise)-produced LP, Tempo, is finally washing up Stateside. Oh, how we should thank the Viking raiders with our fallow virgins! Tempo is lyric-less rock 'n' roll, with Brazilian-tinged percussion and Americana's song structure and instrumentation, all of it immersed in a spirited passion for arrangement. This is your post-rock record of the year.
